Family Matters is a non profit that helps families navigate the special education process.  We guide families and help them learn how to advocate for what their children need. 

The Family Matters PTIC assists  families to learn about early intervention services for children from birth to three years of age,  informs them about special education services for school aged children, helps with transition issues for students who will be leaving the educational system and are preparing for the world of work, adult services or college, and can provide information about resources, best practices, specific disabilities, and training opportunities and conferences.

We also teach self advocacy skills to youth and young adults so that they are better equipped to be independent and contributing members of society. 

We provide webinars and live trainings on a variety of subjects along with providing a lending library.  And all of our services are FREE to families.

Our federal  funding was recently cut by $30,000 so it is crucial that we raise money so we can continue to provide much needed services to families!

Please help the children by donating to our campaign!
